Burt’s Bees Baby Bee Diaper Ointment is a popular all natural diaper rash cream. For parents choosing to use organic baby products, this may be a good choice. This diaper ointment is 100% natural and made with ingredients such as sweet almond oil, beeswax, lavender oil, and rosemary leaf extract so you know you will only be putting safe substances on baby’s skin. A 3 oz. bottle of Burt’s Bees Diaper Ointment retails for $8.99.
Having used Burt’s Bees Diaper Ointment on my son, there are definitely a few things I like about it. Most importantly, I feel it did a good job clearing my son’s diaper rash, which was mild to moderate. However, I don’t believe it cleared any better than when using Desitin. The consistency of the cream is much thicker than Desitin, which I find to be a great feature of the Burt’s Bees. The thickness of the cream allows it to adhere well to baby’s skin and stay there. The cream doesn’t get absorbed into the diaper or into the skin. It simply does it’s job well, which is to create a barrier between baby’s skin and a wet diaper. And of course I love the fact that it is 100% natural. There aren’t any ingredients listed that I can’t pronounce, which means baby isn’t exposed to any unnecessary chemicals.
The only thing about Burt’s Bees Diaper Ointment I’m not particularly fond of is the scent. While it is not a bad smell, it is simply a little bit on the strong side. This is due to the large variety of natural oils and extracts that compose the product. However, once baby’s diaper is on it subdues the scent a little, and it actually becomes quite pleasant.
Here is a quick breakdown on the pros and cons:
Pros: 100% natural and safe for baby’s skin, thick cream that stays on between changing, clears diaper rash well
Cons: Strong scent, pricey
Overall, I have been happy with Burt’s Bees Diaper Ointment. However, I don’t necessarily think it works any better than any other diaper rash cream. The real advantage of this cream is that it is 100% natural. If this is very important to you, Burt’s Bees Baby Bee Diaper Ointment might be the right cream for baby.
